Fans weren’t the only ones confused by Erika Jayne’s story about her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s car accident.
On the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, and Kathy Hilton all shared their feelings about the claims made by Erika on the July 21 episode of the RHOBH.
On the July 21 episode, the RHOBH cast learned that Tom’s assets had been frozen amid his growing legal issues.
“It was very stressful because you thought, ‘Oh my gosh, you know, we’re seeing this, Erika is seeing this. What kind of mood is she going to be in? How is she going to be feeling?’” Kyle said on the July 29 RHOBH After Show. “You feel bad for what she’s going through, but you don’t know the whole story and the background. It was a lot of us trying to figure out everything that was happening and kind of trying to put the pieces together ourselves. We didn’t know anything, and as you know, Erika is a very private person, so we were like, ‘What is going on?’ We were just trying to wrap our heads around everything.”
Erika then revealed to her co-stars that she found “evidence” that Tom cheated on her. She also claimed that there was much more to Tom’s 2017 car accident than she previously told the group. Erika retold the story, alleging that Tom was “unconscious for 12 hours” and suffered “a head injury … he broke his shoulder … snapped his ankle and then broke his clavicle.”
She previously only told the ladies that Tom “broke his ankle.”
“My ears perked up a little bit,” Sutton said on the After Show. “I just didn’t know why we were all the sudden talking about this accident and why we’re talking about this head injury. It was a confusing story. I got a little uncomfortable; I’m not gonna lie. And then I think the rest of the girls who knew this story about some car accident were hearing new information from Erika this time around.”
Dorit noted that she “knew” about Tom’s accident but admitted, “this was the first time that I was hearing the gravity of the accident.”
Kyle said it was “strange” to learn that Tom’s accident was “way worse” than the group initially knew.
“I thought, ‘Well, I wonder why she didn’t tell us that at the time,’ but, you know, in hindsight now I’m thinking maybe because he was going through some mental decline of some sort and maybe they didn’t want that out there publicly because he was running this law firm,” Kyle told sister Kathy. “Maybe it was none of our business because she was scared to say how bad the accident was.”
